"Uma casa portuguesa, com certeza."
"A Portuguese house, for sure."

It is the whitewashed walls, typical of Portuguese architecture, that welcome the arrival of those who visit us.


The scent of the earth and the herb garden give a warm welcome. We respect the most traditional aspects of Alentejo while combining sophisticated decor that blends comfort with the picturesque charm of the place, creating a dreamy setting throughout the year.

In every corner of the house, you will find a piece of our history, with Alentejo's authenticity reflected in delicately arranged ceramics on shelves, tables, and walls, as well as in straw hats and baskets that adorn the space that is home.
